Submission: 12th February 2024 Registration: 31st January 2024 Location: Hyderabad, India Language: English Prizes: Cash Prizes and Publication in an Ideas Compendium Type: Open for all


Hyderabad Urban Lab Foundation in collaboration with Wipro Foundation announces i’Local (Imagine @ Low-cost Action Lab), a competition for urban rejuvenation inviting applications from young and multi-disciplinary teams!

i’Local supports and nurtures meaningful placemaking efforts through the (re)imagination of city spaces and the values associated with them. It is an opportunity to revitalize sites of neglect, disuse, and disrepair and return them to their communities. It calls for imagining pathways that make the creative use of existing resources, rather than large investments.

Participating teams may choose to work on one or more of the ten predetermined sites scattered across Hyderabad. In part one of the competition, interested participants identify a site, network, and form a team, attend virtual workshops, and generate ideas concluding with an abbreviated submission of their best idea. In part two, the jury selects ten teams to carry forward their idea with dedicated professional mentors for a robust final submission. The selected teams win cash prizes and an opportunity for their idea to be published in an idea’s compendium.
